ST LUCIA – Women busted with cocaine in privates

GEORGETOWN – The two St. Lucian women who were busted with cocaine in their vaginas at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Wednesday have pleaded guilty to the drug trafficking charges and will not be heading home for the holidays.

Chermisa Wheeler and Andree Willy.

The two women, 43-year-old Andree Willy and 38-year-old Chermisa Wheeler appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court this morning and both entered a guilty plea when the charges were read to them by Magistrate Judy Latchman.

Wheeler has been sentenced to 48 months in jail and fined G$79,200 for her attempt to ferry out just over 3 ounces of cocaine while the other St. Lucian was sentenced to 50 months in jail and fined G$268,200 for her efforts to traffic 10 ounces of cocaine through the Cheddi Jagan Airport.

The two women faced separate charges and became emotional as the charges were read to them and the Magistrate delivered the sentences.

The court was told by the Prosecutor that the women were departing passengers at Guyana’s Cheddi Jagan International Airport when agents of the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit noticed them behaving in a suspicious manner as they approached the airport security scanner.

The women were searched and the cocaine was found stashed in their vaginas wrapped up in plastic measuring up to eight inches long.

The two arrived in Guyana last week for a vacation. Investigators are still probing other leads in the case with regard to persons that the two may have met during their Guyana vacation. (SNO)

    They obviously thought that if the cocaine was stashed where “The Sun Don’t Shine” that they would somehow have been able to evade the Guyanese authorities. I guess they never heard about “de long hand a de law”
